MELISSA ERRICO
Mark Cortale and BROADWAY @ THE ART HOUSE are proud to present MELISSA ERRICO (Tony Nominated Star of Amour & My Fair Lady)  with Seth Rudetsky at the piano.


Melissa Errico is a Tony Award-nominated Broadway star, concert artist, and author. The Wall Street Journal recently referred to her as a "nonpareil cabaret singer and called her 2018 album, Sondheim Sublime, The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded. That album led to sold-out concert dates around the country--from Ravinia to Caramoor and Wolftrapas well as in London and Paris. Her Sondheim roles on stage include Dot in Sunday In The Park With George at The Kennedy Center, Clara in Passion at Classic Stage Company; and Leona in the NY City Center Encores! production of Do I Hear A Waltz?  In 2020, she sang Children and Art in the Sondheim 90th Birthday Concert Take Me To The World, and was featured on PBS television in a documentary special in which she sang Finishing The Hat and discussed Sondheim and his lyrics with Adam Gopnik and Raul Esparza for Poetry in America. Her starring roles on Broadway include My Fair Lady, Amour, High Society.

After her triumphant visit to Paris this past June, where in company with Isabelle Georges she dazzled for an hour on nationwide French radio, Melissa Errico paid her first visit to the Paris of the North, Montreal.  Opening for George Benson at the legendary Salle Wilfred Pelletier, before 8000 people, Melissa won a permanent place in the hearts of Montrealers by showing off her easy proficiency in spoken French and more important, her dazzling proficiency in French music, landing an inspired set dominated by the music of her mentor, Michel Legrand. As a knocked-out writer from London Jazz News wrote: Errico was energized, making sure with every breath that she would get the audience in the 8000-seater Pelletier really on her side.  Every high note was heroically held, and she got a standing ovation from this audience. Montreal audiences always want to show their warmth and this one made her deservedly welcome.  Added the Quebec Journal, in its review of the show, "It was the Italian-American chanteuse Melissa Errico who was responsible for energizing the concert hall, and that she did, expressing herself as fluently in French as in English, and offering a memorable reprise of Legrand's "Valse des Lilas/Once Upon A Summertime."

Melissa will continue on with George Benson during the next year (dates TBA)  but first she made a special stop at her favorite London nightclub, Crazy Coqs at Zedel, to sing a charmingly eclectic program called, Life & Loves Of A Broadway Baby  with Isabelle Georges coming cross-channel for a special appearance  before heading to The Litchfield Jazz Festival with The Ronnie Scotts Jazz Band for a 2-act solo concert. She won a dozen five-star raves reviews. One critic said I knew she has a gorgeous voice and that shes wholesomely beautiful. But I wasnt prepared for her innate sense of camp, her self-deprecating humour and her earthy sensuality and physicality (the way she moves to music is something joyful to behold) when working through a set list heavy on Michel Legrand (she starred in his short-lived Amour musical on Broadway and is clearly a major Francophile), but also encompassing Porter, Gershwin and a fair bit of Sondheim, Her voice is honeyed and rich in the lower register before soaring effortlessly into soprano territory, and remaining miraculously sweet even when at full belt. With her tumble of brown curls (well, most of its real she quipped after being complimented), cherubic face and hourglass figure poured into a sparkling gown (I came dressed as a saxophone), shes old school glamorous but delightfully off-the-wall funny. Her summer includes stops in Lenox, Mass, Philadelphia, Provincetown, Sag Harbor, Jackson Hole, and more.


Seth Rudetsky spent many years on Broadway as a pianist and/or conductor on shows like Les Miserables, Ragtime and Phantom of the Opera, as well as two years as a comedy writer on The Rosie ODonnell Show (three Emmy nominations with his co-writers) which led to him writing two opening numbers for the Tony Awards. He is now the afternoon deejay on the SiriusXM Broadway channel, as well the host of his own talk show, Seth Speaks. He has performed his show, Deconstructing Broadway in London, Boston (Irne award) and L.A. (with Barbra Streisand in the audience!). He co-wrote and co-starred in Disaster!! (a New York Times critics pick) on Broadway which was licensed by Music Theater International and is being performed around the country. After the Pulse Nightclub shooting, Seth's husband came up with the idea of doing an all-star "What The World Needs Now Is Love" and they recorded it with around 50 stars like Carole King, Idina Menzel, Gloria Estefan, Bernadette Peters and more and it went to number one on iTunes, has raised over $100,000 for the Pulse nightclub victims and families as well as the Trevor Project and they performed the song at the Democratic National Convention.  Seth and James also put together the "Seasons of Love/Let The Sunshine In" all-star video directed by Schele Williams,  that played at Biden's inauguration. When the Covid lockdown began, Seth and James  started the twice-a-day livestream Stars In The House with reunions of original casts of Broadway shows like Ragtime, A Chorus Line and Cats as well as TV shows like "Grey's Anatomy", "Taxi" and "E.R." (with George Clooney who was in London!). The livestream raised over $1,000,000 for the Actors Fund and over $100,000 for other charities like NAACP LDF and "You Gotta Believe" for foster youth. Seth has published numerous books including "The Rise And Fall Of A Theatre Geek" (Random House" and the just released  "Musical Theatre For Dummies"/  You can learn about more Seths concerts, Broadway cruises and watch his videos at SethRudetsky.com.
